If you're in the mood for a few games you can grab for free, we've got some right here. All of them are classics in their own way, whether they were things we used to play on old game systems or something we'd do to burn time in study hall.
I'll also mention a little bit of news about a potential showdown next year between the Kindle Fire 2 and iPad 2. Read more here. As much as millions of people are happy with their Fires, I'm sure an 8.9" tablet in Amazon's catalog would only broaden their appeal, even if it becomes a bit less portable.
So how about those free games?
